Just something the person I have put the message on for said he wondered if she had been married before.

Will go and search BMD and see what I can find out about Walkden unless spelling of surname is wrong.

Right - I think you have got a bit confused here!

Have now found that the marriage of a William Coldham to a Marion Elizabeth Walkden took place 21/10/1914 Vernon, British Columbia, Canada.

I've subsequently found their deaths Marion Elizabeth Coldham bc.1878, died 3/2/1961 Kelowna, British Columbia and William Coldham bc.1883, died 7/11/1964 Kelowna, B.C.   (1921 Canada Census shows he was bc.1881 England).

So, this William (who was a plain William) was bc.1880-1883 England and can't be the W F R J Coldham born in 1895!

Is it the William b.1880-1883 England who married Marion Elizabeth Walkden in 1914 you are actually interested in or WFRJ Coldham born 1895?

The 1911 Canadian census records William Coldham b. 1881, he is living with his brother Thomas Coldham b. 1874.

His brother's name may help to locate William before he emigrated to Canada.

I had come to exactly the same conclusions regarding family of William Coldham - his birth reg'd June. 1882 Sudbury, mmn Orbell.

Parents William Coldham and Jessie Orbell married in London - 15/4/1874 St. Botolph, Bishopsgate - he son of William, she dau. of Joseph.   I see from census that Jessie was born in Pentlow, Essex.
